We have a lot of docs at http://xfs.org/index.php/XFS_Papers_and_Documentation
in publican/xml format, but Dave has been making noises about converting
that to asciidoc.  In any case, the goal is documentation which is readily
available, version-controlled, for which patches may be submitted...

Like everything else, there are more things to do than there are hours
to do them.
